Today I’m sharing a Blackberry Kir Royale Cocktail. It is super easy and perfect for special occasions. Join in for this month’s Flavors of France Progressive Eats dinner!
I do love a nice fruity cocktail and when celebrating French cuisine, I thought only a champagne cocktail would do. Of course I put an little Oklahoma spin on it and added blackberry brandy. The results were superb!
Kir Royale is a classic cocktail that mixes champagne and creme de cassis. Of course finding something like that in my little town is crazy talk. When I spotted the blackberry brandy, I knew that would be a fabulous combination. You can also use sparkling wine if champagne isn’t quite in the budget.
Now how about that fabulous menu we have lined up for you this month!

If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, a progressive dinner involves going from house to house, enjoying a different course at each location. With Progressive Eats, a theme is chosen each month, members share recipes suitable for a delicious meal or party, and you can hop from blog to blog to check them out.
We have a core group of 12 bloggers, but we will always need substitutes and if there is enough interest would consider additional groups. To see our upcoming themes and how you can participate, please check out the schedule at Creative Culinary or contact Barb for more information.
